School Supplies

More than 110,00 students will be homeless this school year, and stretched extremely thin. Homeless famlies simply can't afford many of the basic items their kids need for school. As we have done in past years, St. Francis Xavier Social Justice Ministry will be accepting donations of NEW backpacks and other school supplies through the weekend of August 18/19.
These backpacks and supplies will be delivered to the Coalition for the Homeless so they can be given to the children in time for the first day of school. If you would like to make a donation but will not be able to drop it off, please contact Regie Hawkey or Maryanne Mazzola.  Lists of needed items are in the vestibule.
